Crews investigate suspicious package at Springfield courthouse
SPRINGFIELD, MA (WGGB/WSHM) - Emergency crews were called to a report of a suspicious package this morning near the roderick ireland courthouse.
According to Mass. State Police, a call reporting the package came in around 10:30 a.m. Wednesday.
Springfield Fire Capt. Drew Piemonte told us there is no credible threat, but proper protocols were followed as a precaution.
“The bomb squad came down, we decided to go down range, shoot an x-ray of the package. We evacuated people from that side of the courthouse,” said Springfield Police Commissioner B.J. Calvi.
The x-ray showed the package was empty and crews were able to clear the scene. Operations returned to normal at the courthouse a short time later.
